    HTTPs repository

    Why is the download of the teamspeak products only available via http? I know that there is a hash provided, but I dont want to check the hash every time I download something and most users wont check it anyway. So why dont you just set up https for the download source?

    You just answered it yourself.

    SSL is not a magic solution.
    You have to actually check if it's actually trusted, origin source, with an actual certificate actually provided by an actually trusted third party signer.
    Since nobody care to test it all anyway, it provides no more "safety", than plain old HTTP.

    It is A LOT more safer than plain old http because you would actually need to compromise the download server. With only http, you dont even need to infect the server.

    TLS is for transport. It takes care that data is sent from the server to you, unmodified. If it is modified on the way, you'll get a certificate warning. No chance there with HTTP.
